A native Texan, Elliott graduated from The University of Kansas with a BA in Fine Arts. She then returned to Texas working as a leading freelance illustrator in Dallas for 27 years. “I have many years of art experience, so my development as an oil painter was fueled by working with the figure, portraiture and design,” says Elliott. In 2005 she returned to her fine art roots, dedicating herself exclusively to her studio practice as an oil painter.
